Some Facts All Nebraskans Ought to
Very few people have any idea of
the productivity of Nebraska. They
have some comprehension of the gold
output of the nation and of the sev
eral states. They think of the copper
output as something wonderful. They
think of the tobacco crop as one of
the nation’s great resources. Yet they
utterly fail to realize that Nebraska
produces in grains and grasses more
wealth than the gold mines, the cop
per mines or the tobacco plantation.
Wonderful stories have been told
of the Alaskan mines, and thousands
have been lured to the mountains of
the west and the frozen wastees of
Alaska by the glitter of the yellow
metal. But in 1909 the corn crop of
Nebraska was worth $5,000,000 more
than all the gold mined during the
same year in the entire United States,
Including Alaska and the Philippines.
We have heard about sugar and
its protection until we are apt to
imagine that tlie sugar crop of the
United States is something magnifi
cent in its proportions. But the 1909
wheat crop in Nebraska was worth
$5,700,000 more than the entire sugar
production of the United States dur
ing the same year.
i cxas is a great state, aim it tunes
the lead in cotton production. VVe
have heard a great deal about “King
Cotton,” but (he 1909 oats crop in
Nebraska was worth $4,500,000 more
than the 1909 cotton crop of Texas.
Kentucky is the greatest tobacco
producing state in the Union, and
we are apt to believe, it means more
to Kentucky than any grain crop
means to Nebraska. But the 1909
egg crop in Nebraska was worth
$500,000 rnpre than the 1909 crop of
Rockefeller acquired wealth from
petroleum, and we are apt to imagine
that the crude petroleum product is
something far surpassing the entire
product of Nebraska’s field and
stock yards. Not so! In 1909 the
Nebraska live stock product was
worth $9,000,000 more than the total
crude petroleum product of the United
States for the same year.
Illinois is one of the great coal pro
ducing states of the Union, and coal
is one of the boasted products of
the Sucker state. But Nebraska wild
and tame hay in 1909 was worth
$14,000,000 more than the 1909 out
put of Illinois cdal.
Nebraska butter in 1909 was worth
$3,000,000 more than the total gold
and silver output of Colorado’s mines
for the same year.
Nebraska’s 1909 corn crop was
worth $23,000,000 more than the Na
tion’s tobacco crop for the same year.
Nebraska live ctock, cereals, grass
es, butter, eggs, fruit and poultry in
1909 was worth as much as the Na
tion’s output of bituminous coal, save
the output of Illinois, mentioned abo\e
Nevada is the great mining state,
but her 1909 output of gold and silver
was worth $1,000,000 less than Ne
braska’s 1909 crop of alfalfa.
VVe hear much of the iron and steel
-J . ■ ___» - --
industry, but Nebraska beef! v and
pork in 1909 was worth $43,000,000
more than the product of iron ore of
the nation, valued at the mines.
Isn’t it a wonderful state? And
isn't it our duty to spread a know
ledge of it abroad to the land hungry
and industrious peoples of the earth.
One of the youngest, Nebraska is
also one of the greatest states in the
Union. Let us all work together for
the upbuilding of Nebraska, and one
way to accomplish the best results is
to spread abroad the real facts about
this beloved state of ours

CONQUERING THE WASTE SAND
European Countries Solving Great
Problem by Planting Vast Areas
Europe la conquering the waste land
problem by planting trees. Every year
thousands of acres of land are being
reclaimed In this way by the lending j
countries and put In a condition ;
preparatory to a profitable timber har [
vest In the years to come.
Not only many previously forested I
areas which have been cut over have j
been planted up, but a number of the |
countries are also devoting their ener
gies to establishing a forest cover on
dunes and other waste lands, and, In
fact, on all land which Is more valu
able for producing timber than for
France has been one of the foremost
European countries in reforestation,
especially In the mountains, where
planting has been a powerful factor In
controlling torrents and regulating
stream flow. The state each year buys
uncultivated lands, in the mountain
regions, and up to January, 1907, it
had acquired 503,000 acres in this way.
Communes, associations and private
individuals are also assisted in re
forestation work by grants of money
and by supplies of plants and seeds.
Altogether 249,000 acres have been
ilanted through tills public assistance.
Complete exemption from taxation for
a long period of years is granted In
the ease of plantations made on the
tops of slopes of mountains. A reduc
tlon of three-fourths for all land plant
ed or sown, whatever its situation, is
WILLING TO CALL IT OFF -
Lew Dockstrader Tells Story to Illus
trate His Theory That We're
“We’re all superstitions," says Lew
Dockstrader. “Ever hear the story of
the two negroes who got Into an ar
gument? One says to the other: 'I’ll
bet yo' a dollah that 1 got the nerve
to sit on a tombstone In de graveyard
while the clock strikes midnight.’ The
bet was made, but the other man
had to go along to see whether or not
the conditions were carried out. On
the way to the cemetery the second
man fell and broke his wooden leg.
But he was so anxious to win that dol
lar that he took the leg off and hob
bled along to the cemetery, one hand
on the other negro's shoulder. They
seated themselves on a prostrate tomb
stone. ’Do I win that dollah, or do I
not?' asked the man who made the I
proposition, triumphantly. Just then |
the clock in the church steeple began
to strike. From behind a bush near '■
by a sheeted figure advanced upon
the negroes. 'Whahfoah are you all
dlstuhbin’ mah rest?' it asked. The |
negro that bet he wasn't afraid |
started for home on the keen Jump !
The only way out was through a nar
row lane, bounded on either side by j
tall hedges. About half way down the j
lane the running negro heard a pat
pat-pat just behind him. He could !
feel the hot breath of his pursuer on i
the back of his neck. A hand reached j
out and touched him on the coat, and ;
he just doubled his speed. 'Oh, mah
goodness, niggah!’ said the voice of 1
the one-legged man, 'git outen mah
road and yo’ can keep yo’ ole dol
The Wise Tailor.
"The late Goldwin Smith,” said a
magazine editor, "exuded good advice
on all occasions.
“You know liow barbers, in their de
sire to sell tonics and pomades,
make coarse and insulting references
to their patrons’ baldness? Well, a
Montreal barber once criticised the
condition of Prof. Smith’s hair in that
“ ‘Hopelessly bad as your scalp
looks, sir, my Scalpene-Dandurffia will
tlx it up.'
"Tho aged philosopher flushed and
“ ‘You are very foolish to point out
your patrons’ physical defects. That
saddens and displeases them. It
doesn’t make them buy. It drives them
away, and they will never return. You
would be wiser, my poor fellow, to
imitate a successful down town tailor.
This man says (o every patron as he
takes his measure—he says it to a
fat and lean, short and tall, alike:
“ ‘It’s an extraordinary thing—of
course you already know it, sir—but
you have exactly the same measure
ments as the Apollo Belvidere.’ ’’
Eye Shows Disease.
According to Dr. \V. Anderschon, a
Norwegian scientist, all diseases and ,
injuries are registered on the iris, :
either by color spots or lines, each j
organ of the body being connected ;
up with the iris and having its repre- !
sentative place there. The right eye
j is the indicator for the right part of i
the body and the left eye the indi
cator for the left half. The new sys- j
tern of diagnosis is said to have been I
discovered by Professor Peozely of
Poland, who, in his boyhood, caught
an owl and the bird’s right leg was
broken. The boy noticed a black j
stripe in its right eye. He kept the j
bird and found that when the fracture
was well the black line disappeared.
Race Growing Sturdier.
Dr. Sargent of Harvard finds that
the present day undergraduate is an
Inch taller and four or fivo pounds
heavier than the undergraduate of 30
years ago, and he lays it to athletics.
We doubt that. Why not lay it to
the generally believed fact that their
mothers are taller and more healthy
than were their grandmothers?
